This morning one of my Google alerts found a blog coming from the World Economic Forum. It reminds us of the inventor of the password Fernando Corbato. In an interview with the Wall Street Journal, he said passwords have become “a nightmare”.
The open question is how do we solve for the nightmare of password management we have created that is both effortless and secure.
This article calls for private enterprise and our governments to find answers. I hope in finding these answers capitalism and profit do not become the reason to act. I hope social responsibility and community action drive all to find answers that are affordable, convenient, secure and more importantly consumer-friendly.
